Alas our visit to Takaragawa Onsen must come to an end. After a quick wander around to check out the sad bears in cages, it was time to get back in the car and go. Osenkaku is a great place to stay but those bears are really problematic. It is one thing to hunt and kill wild bears for food but to keep a couple of poor sad bears in tiny enclosures is definitely an issue.
Georgia strapped and ready to go. Bear in hand and the bag of goodies she got with the first dinner in the other. Lots of little toys in that bag. Half of them are probably choking hazards but it has barely left her side since she got it.
